Dickson House Cultural Centre, Kuwait City

(3.7/5 based on 20+ reviews on the web)
See the possessions of a British colonial administrator from 1920s at Dickson House Cultural Centre. With his wife, Harold Richard Patrick Dickson lived in this house until his death. Dickson wrote books on Kuwait, and the government as well as locals respected him. After the Iraqi invasion, the government restored his home and exhibited his documents. In addition to letters and documents from that period, this house presents the rare example of 19th century Kuwaiti architectural style. See rare documents as you walk through the complex's 30 rooms.
